Some day, a child will look you in the eye. A child you know. He will point out what is happening today: Resources being depleted, aspirations vitiated, misery overlooked with callousness, personal gain maximized. Then you will be asked: Did you really not know at the time?
All of a sudden it dawns on us that we are concerned after all and that we have to make a decision: To either keep our eyes open and take action or to look away and do nothing. We are not always offered the opportunity to change the major things in the world, but we do have the power to correct the minor ones.
